“3210” Extra Brut

Champagne, Blanc de Blancs, NV

Chardonnay

Precision and focus are two words that come to mind after tasting 3210. Persistent and lively bubbles express aromatics of toasted pastry, lime, and fresh cut flowers, from 100% Chardonnay. The palate exposes supple stone fruits and lemon curd with a lengthy, refreshing finish. This wine stands out as a transparent expression of the Champagne terroir of the Côtes des Blancs.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The name says it all; 3 years on the lees before disgorgement, 2 terroirs in the Côte des Blancs (one in the village of Montgueux prized for the ripeness, and the other is the famous Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) 1 grape variety, Chardonnay, and 0 dosage added. The balance created between these two villages is a match made in Champagne heaven. An extra brut style that delivers.

“TER” Blanc Brut

Champagne, Blanc de Blancs, NV

Chardonnay

With five years on the lees you find both depth and precision in "Ter Blanc." The perlage is refined and abundant with a persistent mousse. The elegant aromatics are alive with nuts, citrus, and white flowers and on the palate there is a chalky sapidity. the expressive finish is true to the mineral rich terroir of the region, from three vineyard sites in the Côte des Blanc; two Grand Cru, one Premier Cru.

POINTS OF INTEREST

One of the newest cuvées from the Gonet family, these "Ter" wines highlight the soil, terroir, and the HVE sustainable farming practices at the Gonet family estate. For too long the major Champagne houses prized consistency over terroir expression. While technically registered as a negociant, Gonet is part of the "Grower Champagne" revolution showcasing the vinous character of Champagne from their vineyards.
